south to drop off moron

John Hughes wrote the script for Mr. Mom, one of our perennial favourites. Solid gold. Pure 80's suburbia. Jack Butler may not be a sartorial inspiration (though has hot and cold running ocbd's) but the movie, about a Detroit car company exec' wrangling the kids while wife goes back to work, is eerily relevant for our bailout/bust times. So many good lines... Sidenote, Keaton is on fire here. Hell, we even quote from Multiplicity... TTF.

"Dad, you're doing it wrong. "
"South to drop off MorON!"

"Can you run the hams by me on more time?"

"Just get baloney mister!"


"Want a beer? ... Scotch?"

" How about a nice trim on that mustache RON!"

Jack Butler method part II. Let's skip a few steps.

Batman in a salt & pepper sportcoat. Partycrasher at back left...
Kids looking sharp. Tweed woobie?
"South to drop off... Get it right next time."
Getting dark. His shoe vs TV. TV loses. Phone already smashed.

All babies should eat chili... Family!!
